Remember Norma Jean Coon? She is the courageous woman who repudiated her simulated “ordination” in the wymynpryst thingie and has cut all her ties with the wymin, as she works with the CDF for the lifting of the excommunication she incurred. WDTPRS admires what Mrs. Coon is doing. We wrote about her HERE.
We talked about this here about a month ago. Now, however, National Catholic Fishwrap has set their cub-reporter Zoe Ryan in the Intern on this story. Fishwrap reports that the wymymnenne say that … well… Mrs. Coon wasn’t really very involved very much anyway and suggest that perhaps she wasn’t very stable.
The Fishwrap, as you know, is a promoter of the ordination of wyymymnnm.
Here are some of the best lines from the Fishwrap damage-control piece.
“The Vatican labels the ordination of women in the Catholic church as a grave offense and participants are excommunicated latae sententiae, or automatically.”
Remember, it’s not nice to “label”!
Zoe the Fishwrap Intern paints the wimnym as understanding and cooperative. The article suggests that Coon wasn’t all that stable because of other burdensome things going on in her life and they just want to “help her follow her conscience”.
“The program is individualized for each person and includes an intake clinical interview and psychological screenings, among other things.”
I imagine the “other things” include walking with thoughtful expressions around on mazes.
“Because women’s ordination is not allowed in the Catholic church, those who participate in ceremonies confront conflict within the church.”
It is not allow because it is IMPOSSIBLE and it isn’t “within”. That’s why doing it shows that you are “outside”.
For these wymmnmyn it’s all about individual conscience. You choose what you want to do regardless of whether or not the Church has something to say about it.
“We remain ordained Roman Catholic Womenpriests who continue to follow our informed consciences and, simply put, obeying God trumps obeying the pope.”
No, dearie, you aren’t.
